romney has adopted policies that are unfortunately to the right of where george bush was on tax policy. he is a more conservative tax policy at this point than george bush did. so that's the choice that people face. it is true. i think people should vote on issues like choice because the reason why we have women engaged so much in this election, is because republicans made issues like contraception controversial. young women who have not been motivated to vote are voting, because they never thought birth control would be a political issue. that happened because republicans attacked it, not democrats. >> i absolutely agree with you on why women matter. that's why we are doing a whole special at 6:00 tonight on exactly this issue of why women matter. coming up, the slow and steady comeback of the u.s. economy. there is some undeniable evidence that there is a roux he coverry. is it enough? what is next? that's what we come back.

to george w bush. george bush was the incumbent president with you they say ohio under reports how the candidate is doing and there is plenty of room for mitt romney's ground game to put him over-the-top in ohio and get him to the 270 needed tuesday night. bill: back in the same part of virginia where they have been for the last couple of months. the president is giving his closing argument and using colin powell to do that. what is tkpwoef governor romney's closing argument? >> the intervention of hurricane sandy interrupted his driver reas much as he wanted to. it boils on you to bold, real change. mr. obama having been reelected wasn't able to keep many of the promises that he made. many of the policies that he put forth as a candidate didn't work as president. he has been emphasizing his bayh partisanship as governor of massachusetts trying to get swing voters in this race. we have ten battleground states that mitt romney plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he'll include in them pennsylvania and wisconsin, states that had been considered in the obama column that he no
this state twice. in 2,000 it went to george w. bush. but in two thour four it went to john carry. the president got a nine point victory in 2008. so we are a toss up state. the polls go back and forth forth. >>> it's difficult to determine who is going to win this state. host: how do residents vote on election day? guest: there is not early voting but tr is absentee ballots which have you to sign a form saying you're not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally polls are open from 7:00 to 7:00, some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other stratist cal facts are that we are one of the least tax states in the nation, the least stack state actually. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two governor candidates are running on that issue as a matter of fact. host: and talk about the recount laws that are in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that t
george w. bush and a romney supporter and rnc surrogate. good afternoon to you, sir. >> great to be with you, craig. >> polls in florida show the race mighty close. how tough will it be for romney to carry the state if democrats win the early voting battle by a significant margin? >> governor romney really needs to win in the state of florida. the early voting, you characterized that right. it's been a democratic strength. as a matter of fact, in 2008, the obama team had a 10% advantage on early vote nationwide. what we are seeing in these battleground states and across the country in this cycle is that that advantage is still there but much smaller, less than 4% advantage to the democrats so far in early voting. what the republicans are trying to do in key states like florida, especially ohio, is just do everything they can to improve upon their performance four years ago and mccain's performance four years ago. to have a really vigorous get out the vote effort on election day. >> i want to continue this conversation about early voting. let's move to ohio now. "time" magazine
it simply returns to the policies of george w. bush. >> chris, it is simple. why governor romney is doing better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs, and, mitt romney has a plan that is pro-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would
